Holy Esque continue to bring artistic visuals with a powerful message to their promo videos today by releasing their new film for current single, ‘Tear’.

Directed by William Kennedy, the film tackles the depression and loneliness, an issue that is becoming increasingly more prevalent since austerity measures have hit London’s youth culture.

“The film is about a lonely young woman who loses the ability to dream, who struggles to make ends meet, trapped in a routine and cut off from the people around her. She finds a way to escape her reality through a fleshy, leech-like creature that she keeps under her bed. She becomes addicted to the sensation, despite knowing that the parasitic creature is slowly taking over her mind and body”, explains Kennedy. “The story is cyclical. There is no end. No resolution. There is only routine, and a desperate yearning to escape.”

This subject matter is a relevant theme in the DNA of Holy Esque’s debut album ‘At Hope’s Ravine’. The Glaswegian quartet have gone through the mill to release it, from losing the files for the album and dealing with a corrupted back up disc, to struggling with the financial constraints of being in a modern day city.

One of the core themes of their debut album ‘At Hope’s Ravine’ is in the title itself. Pre-order it from https://holyesque.lnk.to/AtHopesRavine and see them live on tour at the following live shows. Ticket for all shows are available from http://athopesravine.tumblr.com.
